the happy moment last week after the press conference before thanksgiving where political leaders use what the challenge was ahead of them and they were going to address the fiscal cliff. now we're getting the pasturing. senator reid's comments today. the market drops immediately. this headline risk the market is going to suffer from every day until they get to that deal. >> steven, when you look at the retail sales figures over the week, black friday we had up 28% on monday for cyber monday. that would seem to suggest as michelle said that consumers are not too worried about much, including the fiscal cliff. yet, the market has this kind of a selloff when we get words out of washington today. what do you make of this? who's right on the fiscal cliff right now? >> well, i think that -- >> steven gilfoil. >> the consumer isn't paying that much attention to this. the regular american doesn't watch the financial news. he isn't reading the kinds of papers we read. and he's less concerned with this. >> should they be? >> they probably should be, but investors are more concerned with corporate n
men from the navy and army. thanks. >> it was great having you here, brian. >>> that's it for us on "squawk on the street." at noontime, a very special edition of "closing bell" gets under way. have a great day. >>> it is a very special edition of "closing bell." welcome, everybody, to black friday. i'm bill griffeth. >> and i'm mandy drury, standing if for maria bartiromo. if peopler turn out in force to get big bargains. it's not just people in stores buying. investors seem to be buying. >> this is the first black friday rally on friday in four years. this is the last hour of trading right now. we're on a half-day schedule because of the how days, so if you have any trades to get in before the closing bell today, this is the hour to do that. it's been a really mode from the get-go. we're off the highs right now right now we're 102 at 12,939. we were knocking on 13,000's door earlier, pulling back from that right now. the nasdaq is up a person or 31 points, and the s&p at this hour is up 11 points, almost a percent at 1402. a shortened trading day. if anyone was shorting the mar
's "closing bell" exchange, dan mcmahon from raymond james is going to join us. also, john from gfi group. our senior economics reporter, steve liesman, and our own rick santelli. john, it is clear that the fiscal cliff has wall street's full attention right now. do you expect a -- something to happen by december 31 or not? >> we expect something is going to happen. what that's going to be, we don't have the clarity we're expecting just yet. i think it's simple math. everybody knows what has to be done. obviously, we've had many, many studies over the course of the last few years that tell us what has to be done. so it is math. it's just about them getting in a room and hammering out the details. so we obviously need some revenue and some cuts across the board. i think it's how those are going play out in terms of what portion and how much is going to be what the market's really keying on. i think $4 trillion is basically the number that's kind of out there. i think if it comes in higher than that, it's going to be positive. if it doesn't, it's going to be a negative. >> so steve liesman, what
comes right through. >> also, tomorrow night, all of the nbc universal networks, including us, will air a benefit concert featuring bruce springsteen, john bon jovi, and others. you got to watch it. stay tuned. >>> hi, everybody. we enter the final stretch. welcome to the "closing bell." i'm maria bartiromo at the new york stock exchange. the bill,s market kicking off a new month with a solid rally. investors optimistic ahead of tomorrow's key october job report. >> tomorrow's employment numbers could have a major effect not only on wall street but on the presidential election as well. we'll get market experts to weigh in on that a little later. the other big story, of course, the continued fallout from hurricane sandy. if you have a car in new york, new jersey, other areas affected all along the coast, chances are you're having a hard time filling your gas tank. many stations are still closed. others are seeing huge lines. the question is how long is this going to last? we're going to get into that coming up. >> but first, let's look at where we stand as we approach this fina
creation? >> well, from a corporate standpoint, yes, maria, because most u.s. corporations are sitting on cash. as you saw profit margins hitting all-time highs. they're clearly not hiring a lot. at the end of the day, this whole economy and the stock market is about jobs. the market could be up even more if we start to see some job creation, but we can't be bidding stocks higher unless we start to see some in flows from our private client friends, who by the way, don't buy bond funds. we still think there's a lot of work to do on the investment side in terms of building further fundamental clarity with respect to the option of buying equities versus selling them. >> so you're not jumping on this bandwagon today, this rally we're seeing here? >> no, for one thing, we are just relieved that all of this election stuff is over. that's number one. number two, let's get back to the business of america and stocks going up in america as an asset looking very well on a longer term perspective. however, on a near-term basis, the market in our belief is well ahead of historical norms in terms of
-bi-ya moment after the meeting. they said nothing across the pond will hurt us, let's buy here. >> no sense of urgency right now. does the market feed off that? is that what's going on here? >> i continue to look at the treasury market. you can look at a chart overlaid with the stock market. we were following themmer earlier, especially with the opening you describe, then it started to fall off. treasury market seems unimpress unimpressed. i'm in agreement with art, which is a good thing because art is mostly right, that is, nobody's driving the car from a political standpoint. that's the only time i can say a car without a driver is a safer car to be in. the market is reflecting that. if you want to look at something to give you a good clue, watch the euro relationship with our stock market and the global stock markets. that relationship is directly correlated and something to pay attention to. >> as the euro goes, so does our markets. stand by, we have break news on a story we've been watching on hostess. kayla has that. >> the latest is that the u.s. bankruptcy judge said that the partie
to be careful. these are unknowable things. it's a very fluid situation, as you identified. somebody gives us some happy talk. this market goes straight up. i think gold is giving perhaps a false signal there won't be qe-4. i believe there will be. it's just a matter of time. this is going to take time to implement. we're not going to put all these changes in place january 1. there's no grand bargain out there that's going to cover all these things at once. it's going to be to have phased in. it would be too much shock to the financial system. >> steve, if only the market could focus on just the economy, which actually seems to be chugging along okay. if you look at durables, consumer confidence, the ongoing recovery and housing, it's the overhang of the cliff that's spooking everybody. >> yeah, we've had somewhat better numbers. the new home sales today, not great. maybe sandy affected even though the government said it wasn't. the economy's okay. it may be more of a 2% plus economy in the fourth quarter than is being given credit on the street. it's not gang busters. the question has been f
